Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s Live updates of the Under-19 World Cup final between Pakistan and South Africa. I am Abhijit Banare and I will be bringing you live updates from the match. Pakistan have come into match with their batting doing exceptionally well. Skipper Sami Aslam is in good nick and so is Imam-ul-Haq. Aslam was confident of his team’s performance. Meanwhile, a threatening pace attack lead by Kagiso Rabada will look to bundle out Pakistan. Even the Proteas skipper Aiden Markram is in excellent form.

Pakistan is quite top heavy batting wise with skipper Sami Aslam and Imam-ul-Haq scoring most of the runs. There is a cloud over Imam’s fitness for this tournament, as he injured himself during the semi-final. Shakeel can play a responsible hand and he would be their main man in the middle-order.

South Africa’s bowling is very strong with Kagiso Rabada being the star. He bowls at a fair clip and can bounce the ball. He is in top form after the six for 25 he took against Australia in the semi-final. Justin Dill and Bosch can also help him out. Valli and Dirk Bruwer then complete the attack. This attack will face a good test against Pakistan.
